This will ensure that your car maintains high performance and that you can drive with peace of mind knowing that it is capable of withstanding all of the road conditions ahead. Check Your Brakes Your brakes need to be checked and this can be as simple as bringing your car into a location that specializes in brakes. They will check the rotors, drums, and linings. Check Your Tires Your tires need to be checked for both tire pressure and tread depth. If there are bald spots or bulges, your tires may need to be replaced. Schedule an HVAC Inspection An HVAC inspection should be scheduled so that you can make sure that your heating and ventilation system is working properly. Heating is important for your interior comfort. It is also going to help you defrost windows. Make Some Replacements The fall can be the perfect reminder to make some replacements within your car. If it has been a while since you have last replaced your battery (three years or more), now is the time to do so. It is also a good idea to replace the cabin air filter as well as wiper blades so that you are prepared for the colder weather.
